The ensemble joins host Fred Child in the studio to play Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout by their friend, composer Gabriela Lena Frank. Members of the Chiara String Quartet also talk about what it means to play music "by heart."
A popular feature of CMS Two performances is the Late Night Rose sessions - a series of shows above Lincoln Center in the intimate Rose Studio. PT was honored to host the most recent Late Night Rose event back in March. Come listen to an excerpt from that concert, plus interviews with the several performers including Ani Kavafian, Michael Brown and Gloria Chien.
Between 1830 and 1840, thousands of Native Americans were removed from their homes in the Southeast and forcibly relocated rural Oklahoma by the U.S. government. The long, brutal walk became known as the Trail of Tears. More than 175 years after the march, composer Michael Daugherty wanted to share the survivors' and descendants' stories.
PT host Fred Child is joined in the studio by his friend and special co-host, Tesfa Wondemagegnehu. Tesfa has chosen a special playlist of his favorite Christmas performances, and he'll reveal the secret to singing the perfect version of Silent Night.
Every three years, the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center chooses new members for its CMS Two program, which aims to guide some of the best and brightest chamber music players in their careers.
